Feline Friday: Tufty Toes

Moose has the most interesting and funny looking little paws. He's got little tufty toes!


We're not sure of his breed, but he has the majority of characteristics of both Maine Coon and Norwegian Forest Cat, very similar breeds. And one of those characteristics is thick tufts of fur between the toe pads.

My husband thinks its so cute, he always tries to play with Moose's feet, an act which is received with much disdain...

... and if he persists, bloodletting.

MRS B~ He's definitely one of a kind!

NIGHT OWL~ We call him our handsome boy; although when he was younger, he just looked rather goofy. He filled out nicely! LOL

Yes, cats hate to be touched on the toes, gods know why... Baruck is just like that too...

Kisses from us.

NYDIA~ He has the softest, most downy undercoat, you would love to cuddle him... although *he* might protest!
